I will not return here. I am not sure if our server was new or was just overwhelmed. Nothing we ordered was correct and neither was our bill. No refills by Kaitlyn , we had someone else get them. Order was incorrect and she acted put out to correct the bill. Not the service we usually get. Highly disappointed!

My wife and I ate here on a recent vacation to Myrtle Beach. The fries and burgers we ordered were average at best. $30 for the two of us and the burgers were dry and served on regular hamburger buns, the fries were something I could make at home. I think it's more about the view and if you like... More

Great if you just want burgers and a beer or sandwich food. Much better than fast food but not as good for a nice dinner as the places in Murrells Inlet.
